AR Performance as a parts manufacturer is committed to providing the best practical performance in the AR15 platform at a decent price. Better exterior ballistics, terminal performance, accuracy, velocity and long life are all possible with redesigned chambers and high performance hybrid 5R rifling in Melonite treated 4150 CMV barrels. We machine the strongest AR15 bolts made and several efficient muzzle devices.
The 6.8X43 was developed as an improved CQB cartridge by the 5th Group Special Forces. The devasting performance combined with the AR15 makes it the #1 choice of hog and deer hunters .
It has apx 80% of the performance of the 308 in a much lighter platform.
We have designed a 5 groove hybrid rifling similar to 5R with a low land to groove ratio to increase the bore area and lessen bullet deformation which leads to better accuracy. We have found that our 5R Melonite QPQ barrels consistently produce 60-90fps more than most SPCII 10 and 11 twist 4 groove barrels with the same loads. Hornady's 110gr HPBTs reach 2600fps from our 16" barrels and normally shoot under 3/4" groups at 100yds. With better shooters groups are near 1/2" so they shoot better than some high dollar stainless barrels and most match grade 5.56s . Hornady's 120gr SST and Federal's Fusion 115gr work very well on deer and hogs. With handloads it is possible to push a 100gr Nosler to 3000fps from a 16" barrel, nothing else with a 16" barrel comes close to the performance of a 6.8. The Melonite(QPQ) treated barrels we sell will last twice as long as stainless barrels and the final finish meets or exceeds stainless steel corrosion resistance.
The 6.8SPCII and 6.8x43 we use shoot the same ammo including SSAs Tac loads and Wilson Combats ammo uses the same size dies, only the throat in the chamber is different.
In the fall of 2013 we will introduce the 270AR, a .277 caliber cartridge capable of propelling the wide range of great 130gr 270 bullets to 2800fps out of AR15 20" barrels. It is based on the 6.5x47 Lapua or Hornady 6.5 Creedmoor.
2014 - The next generation of 308 sized platforms. Finally an option for those too heavy to carry DPMS LR rifles sitting in the back of the safe. For years many have said they wish there were an AR12. A rifle bigger than an AR15 but without the weight of the AR10. In 2009 I designed a "12" more or less. A 7lb 16" barrel 308 rifle is possible. Standard 308 Pmags can be used in DPMS style 308 lowers. These Nexgen uppers can be built to fire any 308 based cartridges or cartridges based on the 6.5 Carcano (.450" dia case).
The 6.5 x 45mm and 6.8 x 45mm may make a decent GPC for the military.
